Managers Change at Louisiana Regional
October 15, 2018
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is my pleasure to announce that Mr. Chanse Watson will succeed me in the position of Louisiana Regional’s Airport Manager. The next few weeks we will be working together to ensure a smooth transition.
Chanse Watson comes to Louisiana Regional from Lakefront where he served as Assistant Airport Director. Chanse comes to us with a bachelors in Aviation Management and more than 7 years of on the job experience, along with his private pilot certification.
Blessed is to have a vocation that grew into a passion; to have worked and played with so many incredible people, who I now call friends. I am excited to share what I have learned from this journey with my first grandchild due to be born in just a few weeks. I look forward with joyful anticipation to my new title, Granny to Jaymes Elizabeth.
I will forever be grateful for the support and encouragement you all have given me over the years. I am excited for Chanse and Louisiana Regional, knowing good things are in store for both. Thank you and best wishes.
